July 19 – Ocean’s Deepest Point

The ocean’s deepest point, known as the Mariana Trench, is 11 kilometers below the surface. That’s so deep it could swallow Mt. Everest and still leave over 2,000 meters of water above the mountain’s submerged peak. It is believed that over 80% of life on our planet lives deep in the ocean. A pressurized aquarium called the Abyss Box has now been developed to allow the public to see deep sea creatures in their natural environment. Understanding the deep ocean is only at its beginning stages – and is being referred to as a new frontier. But God made it all. In Psalm 104, David said, “O Lord, how manifold are your works. In wisdom you have made them all…this great and wide sea in which are living things both small and great.” A song writer has posed the question “How big is God? And then answers, “He’s big enough to rule this mighty universe but small enough to live within my heart. Now that’s something worth serious thought.
